Sahn-Malen Chiefdom in rapid transformation drive
Civil Society Organizations and other government agencies continued to commend the strides and efforts used in the rapid transformation of Sahn-Malen Chiefdom, Pujehun District.
The village which was once tagged by Sierra Leoneans as an eerie chiefdom is now competing with other townships in the country in terms of development and growth.
Paramount Chief Victor Brima Kebbie continues to recount the successes gained in his chiefdom within the years as a milestone as a miracle to the people of Pujehun district.
“We must accept the fact that the presence of Socfin Agricultural Company is a blessing to the chiefdom people,” he said.
“Those unbelieving Thomas should come and see that the chiefdom is moving, and development has taken the entire chiefdom.” Chief Kebbie stressed.
Recently, a high-powered delegation of CSOs gave the company a pass-mark for their enormous corporate social responsibility within the chiefdom.
The CSO also commended the PC and other chiefdom authorities for allowing the people to have direct negotiation for their lands.
The scale of development within the chiefdom according to the people is huge like the giving of scholarships to deserving pupils, construction of schools, hospitals, roads, culverts to name but a few, are all largess enjoyed by the people of Sahn-Malen chiefdom.
However, Chiefdom Speaker R S Moiguah also raised pertinent issues affecting the chiefdom, which is the undue interference by Green Scenery officials headed by Joseph Rahall who is constantly putting out the wrong information about Socfin and their work.
R.S Moiguah called on concerned authorities to help regularise Green Scenery’s operation in the chiefdom and allow peace to reign for the development of the chiefdom, as against his divisive methods only to secure more funding for his Organization.
“Joseph Rahall should stop the strong conspiracy against the company, he cannot frustrate the people at against their wish,” he said.
However, law makers have also expressed commendations for the vast acreages amounting to 7,100 hectares to the equivalent of 17,500 acres of oil palm and the mill under construction considered the largest in Africa.
